It occurred to me that, at first sight, folks might not notice where I’ve added the Market of the Month over there (I’m pointing to my right. Would that be your left? Um, on the side where all the stuff is, okay?). So, I’m (sorta) pointing it out, as well as pointing out the whys and whatnots of adding a Market of the Month.
These will be markets I like, markets that pay, and markets that I’ll be challenging you to submit to. Whenever you drop in, you’ll see the market and think, “I should give this a go.” If for no other reason so that you can say,”Ha-ha, Cathy C. Hall! I’m published there and you’re not!”
Except for this month. ‘Cause I’m published in Enchanted Conversation. So I’m kinda one up on you. Unless you start writing right now and submit! Later this month, we’ll try a new market, and if you get published, I’ll toot my horn for you! And if I get published, I’ll say, “Ha-ha-ha!”
Oh, and just in case you happen to notice my face over there among the followers? All I can say is that, in my attempt to follow one of my followers’ blogs, I inadvertently followed myself. And now I don’t know how to un-follow myself. So, yeah, I feel pretty ridiculous. And I know exactly what you’re thinking.
Hi Cathy! The Market of the Month is a great idea! Where DO you get these scathingly brilliant ideas?! And I would never laugh at you for a "Blog Boo-Boo" because I do them all the time! And just recently I added myself to follow myself, as well! I just went back to that area and chose to "unfollow" or stop follow or whatever it says there! Good Luck….and never a ha ha in a "mean" way to you! 🙂
I was sure there must be a way to un-follow…I'll try again with your new instructions, Becky. And good luck to you with the Market of the Month!
Hi Cathy,Thanks for sharing the Market of the Month. I will check it out.And, heck, why not follow yourself?You might have started a trend.Donna
I already do too much following of myself…to the kitchen, looking for my glasses, to the bathroom, looking for my other glasses, to the bedroom, looking for my shoes.Oh, Donna, the following never ends :-)(Good luck with the market! I think the theme is Beauty and the Beast. Wheee!)
Is that two months in a row at Enchanted Conversation?! Nicely done!
No, no, Kelly! Just that one time :-)It's published quarterly, I think. The open submission period for the next issue closes on the 15th of Feb. PLENTY of time for you to write something up, Kelly!(Or maybe you're working on a Chicken Soup story? There are quite a few deadlines coming up this month…and I can think of a few of your blog posts that would fit the themes!)
Thanks for the great ideas! Hope to see you at SpringMingle. Maybe we can hang out over one of the meals?
